Bollinger Special Cuvée NV Champagne

The Bollinger Champagne House has created prestigious champagnes with character, distinguished by their elegance and complexity, since 1829. The story began with Athanase de Villermont, the youngest son of a noble family. He inherited an extensive estate from his family in the Aÿ region. He immediately foresaw the extraordinary potential of the wines of Champagne. Upon meeting Joseph Bollinger, a widely travelled German who left his country to learn about Champagne, and Paul Renaudin, a local man fascinated by the world of wine, the firm of Renaudin-Bollinger & Cie was founded on 6th February 1829. Owning 164 hectares of vineyards of which 85% are Grand Cru and Premier Cru vines, Bollinger is one of the few champagne Houses to produce the majority of their own grapes for their blends.

Bollinger's Special Cuvée champagne is representative of their vineyards; with 60% of the House's vineyards being Pinot Noir, this grape is the predominate blend in Special Cuvée. Bollinger lets its wines mature for 6 years, which is twice as long as required, as they believe that great Champagne needs time to develop its full character. In 1911, Georges Bollinger's British agent gave him the idea for the name Special Cuvée - "special" written the English way, without an accent. He thought the French expression "Brut sans année" was no match for such a subtle champagne.

A golden colour with a beautifully fine mousse. The nose is aromatic and complex with ripe fruit and spicy aromas. On the palate, rich apple and peach notes burst through. Hints of brioche and fresh walnut linger on the lasting finish to enhance this powerful Special Cuvée.

Grape Varieties: 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay, 15% Pinot Meunier
Dosage : 8-9g/L

The bottles and magnums are delivered in gift boxes as shown in the image. The jeroboam is delivered in a plain outer cardboard box and not in a wooden box.

“Refined nose with stylish restraint. Carefully intertwined spicy-earthy notes to the lemon, apple pie, baked pear, cinnamon and vanilla tones. Mild deliberately oxidative character beneath the intense fruitiness. Seamless structure on the generous palate. Long, mineral, dry (8-9g/l) finish. Built to last, so deserves additional post-disgorgement ageing.”

“Aromatic, with accents of bread dough, smoked almond and crème de cassis, this creamy Champagne is lightly chalky in texture and framed by firm acidity, with flavors of glazed apricot, orange blossom and rich hints of clover honey and coffee liqueur. Drink now through 2022.”

“As always, since its first vintage, the House offers a complex wine, vinous and fresh at once. The aromas of white fruit compote, vanilla finely peppery notes play with finesse and smoothness of the bubbles. Indisputably major. ”

“Pale yellow. Toasty aromas of apple and pear nectar are complemented by hints of toffee, honey and orange zest. Full and expansive on the palate, offering ripe orchard and pit fruit flavors and an undercurrent of smoky minerals and buttered toast. Smooth and gently spicy on the clinging, nicely focusd finish.”

“The classic Bollinger nonvintage is, as always, rich and firmly structured. With the roundness that comes from aging the wines in wood before blending, it has a ripe, smooth edge. Underneath, the texture is solid, with hints of apple and pear and mature acidity.”

“The NV Brut Special Cuvée is fabulous. Hints of pears, pastry crust and hazelnut lead to an expansive core of fruit. There is plenty of the signature Bollinger oxidative style in this rich, enveloping Champagne. Once again the Special Cuvée is one of the best Champagnes in its price range”
